Milazzo has a strategic position at the base of a widely stretching mountain, the Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto on a peninsula 5kms out on the Tyrrhenian Sea, at the north-eastern part of Sicily. This gave the city an important role since its foundation more than 2,500 years ago.
In recent days, Milazzo is the gateway for those heading to the Aeolian Islands. While most of the visitors are just passing through, Milazzo certainly worth’s a visit if you’re in the area – don’t let yourself being fooled by the industrial buildings on the coast!
The ancient city’s old town is full with old remnants and other sights, while the cape is also well worth exploring, particularly the splendid Norman castle, the cavernous rock church of Sant’Antonio di Padua and the beaches of the nearby Riviera di Ponente. Great views and sunsets are guaranteed and there are several good walking tracks for those, who’re in love of some exercise.
Later, if you’re heading for the Aeolian Islands for a couple of days and need somewhere to park your car in Milazzo, try the Garage delle Isole in Via San Paolino, 66! It is well signposted from the motorway exit and situated just 600m from the port. They run a shuttle service to and from the port for those with luggage, if you happen to arrive on sea.

The capital of Sicily awaits its visitors with many monuments: the royal palace of Norman with the world-famous Capella Palatina, Arabic temples, old palaces, Quattro Canti, Piazza Pretoria. The Pellegrino mountain offers spectacular views of the city and the bay. From Palermo, you can easily reach the picturesque Mondello, one of Palermo’s exclusive resting and beaching areas along a wide bay.
The Italian island is characterized by African heat from spring to autumn. The locals do not venture to the street almost as if the siesta, the evening, the afternoon after hours of sunrise is lifted up.
